Exclusive villas, local knowledge and personal service.



You could win a week’s stay at villa Panayia View on the Greek Island
of Paxos, courtesy of The Thinking Traveller.

Since 2002, The Thinking Traveller has been offering privileged and exclusive access to the most desirable rental properties in the heart of the Mediterranean, more specifically in Sicily, Puglia, the Greek Islands. The company’s success – including being voted the world’s #1 villa rental company four years in a row at the Condé Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice awards - is based on three founding principles: exclusive villas, unrivalled local knowledge and expert personal service.

Panayia View, named after the little island it overlooks, sits in a tranquil position amidst a garden of olive groves. It offers airy, flexible interiors, plenty of panoramic terraces, a peaceful ambience and a lovely pool, all within a short walk of the tavernas, bars, harbour, beach and gentle bustle of Gaios Town. The best of both worlds.
